Essentially, the book, DVD presentations, and personal instruction clearly covers all the various and salient points of Vedic Astrology -- along with the basic and advanced principles of the Systems' Approach to Interpreting Horoscopes as developed by Professor V.K. Choudhry.

(The Systems' Approach was developed by Professor Choudhry who conducted empirical studies on more than 100,000 charts, over a 20-year period; and is now being used by more than 800 Vedic astrologers worldwide.)

Main topics in the book and on the DVDs include:

  • The Four Elements of Vedic Astrology: the Signs, Planets, Houses, and Planetary Periods
  • Various Concepts and Terminology
  • Basic and Advanced Principles of Chart Interpretation
  • Sample Charts and How To Study The Horoscope
  • Techniques to Read Both the Natal and Transit Charts

This home study course is ideal for those who want to learn how to be their own Vedic Astrologer with a minimum of time and effort.

With these materials, participants will quickly learn how to read the main points in the charts of any individual, event, or organization; and how to use Vedic astrology for any purpose in life.

Course participants have the potential to become tomorrow's leading astrologers, as many referrals come to those practicing the Systems' Approach to Vedic Astrology -- due to the accurate, relevant, and practical readings provided to others.


The course fee is $150.00 U.S. and can be paid by check, money order, credit card, or PayPal.
